About:

Cassava is a woody shrub which is native to South America and belongs to the spurge family, Euphorbiaceae. Although a perennial plant, Cassava is widely cultivated as an annual crop in tropical and subtropical regions owing to its edible starchy tuberous root, which is one of the richest sources of energy (carbohydrates). Cassava is mostly consumed in boiled form; however, its substantial quantities are utilised to extract cassava starch. Its starchy roots can also be processed into cassava chips, cassava flour, and cassava pellets. Further, it is the third most significant crop of the tropical region after rice and maize.

Production Process

  • Production of Cassava via Cultivation 

Being one of the most drought-tolerant crops, Cassava is capable of growing on marginal soils. After the cultivation and maturing of Cassava, it is harvested by hand. The upper parts of the stems containing leaves are plucked off before harvest.  The method involves the raising of the stem’s lower part and pulling the roots out of the ground. These roots are then separated from the base of the plant to obtain Cassava roots.
